    Glenn, it was a lot of fun riding those back roads! So much so, that I spent 7 hours on all the rural roads through Howard, Frederick, Carroll and Baltimore counties today (when I should have been working). There will always be work, but not may opportunities to ride.

    The new tag has moved even more to central MD.

    You will find the crab has reunited with the MD TOR again.

    And found a crack to hide in.

    The name of this road that the billboard is on, is Mill St. South

    The tag is only a few yards away from the Mason Dixon Line. I will provide more clues if necessary.

    :D

    For the new tag Crabby did not travel far and here is the tag photo to take. The bike is on the road in the background, visible straight above my helmet:
    [​IMG]
    Across the street are two posts and Crabby is behind the base of the southern one, shown here on the left:

    Some clues:
    Listen to James Taylor and Mark Knopfler's song "Sailing to Philadelphia" while charting the place:

    The Calvert Crest of Arms faces the pretty boy.

    A Rule is involved and it relates to the number of States.

    This stone is a replacement erected in 1902 and has a current survey marker on the top.

    Had a nice talk with Bruce, who's land the crown stone is on. He rides a KTM 990 but isn't real active on ADV.

    What am I supposed to do with the two pence coin that was in with the crab?

    Tag. Go through Catoctin Mountain Park, and keep going up. You'll get to the tag.

    Maine this way. The crab is at the base of the post with the white blaze, behind Heather.

    Georgia this way. The crab is at the base of the post with the white blaze to the left.

    I would have beaten your ass, if it wasn't for a Triumph technicality!
    Stalling, stepper motor/shaft problem? Or a software issue?
    Either way you win! Next time amigo!
